Shanna and Eleven

For the very first time ever, I will be teaching in Chicago. Yes, the Windy City will be welcoming me and at least one of my vulva puppets as I descend upon the awesome feminist, sex positive toy store Early to Bed. It’s going to be my Ain’t Nothing but a G-thang class all about the sometimes elusive G-spot, vulvar ejaculation and more! It’ll be on Wednesday, July 25th.

Ever wondered where that often talked about “g-spot” resides, and how exactly you can find it, stimulate it, and really get the most of out it? Learn all about this mysterious pleasure zone from the anatomical side, as well as great ways to nurture and pleasure this sensitive zone of wonder.  Plus, if you’ve ever wanted to know about female ejaculation, we’ll talk about what it is, the make-up of the fluid, and how to work towards ejaculating if that’s your goal. G-spot workshops are great for people of all orientations, single, coupled, etc.

$20 per person ($15 low income/students). All adults welcome.

I’d love love love to see you at my class, whether we’ve known each other for years, or never met before. It is open to all ages (18+), single folks as well as partnered, and for people of all genders and orientations.

If you’d like to attend, please click here to sign up, and I’ll see you next Wednesday!

Right Foot Red, Left Hand Lube: Sex Positions for EVERYONE!

May 28th, 1pm – 3pm

Held at the Denver Sanctuary

Sanctuary Membership NOT required to attend. Anyone 19+ welcome to attend.

Forget the Kama Sutra and Tantra. Leave your sex swing at home. This workshop is on sex positions that anyone can do; no fancy hardware or spiritual revelations needed. We’ll talk about everything from Missionary to Froggy Style, Reverse Cowgirl to the Sneaky Vampire. Want a threesome? Got positions for that. Have arthritis? We’ve got positions for that. Ready to integrate sex toys into the bedroom (or shower, or car)? Check. Bring your favorite position in mind, and be ready to try out new positions (with clothes on) as we sex-plore our way through the endless types of positions available to us. Open to singles, couples and more-somes, and people of all genders, orientations and abilities.

I’ll be in Seattle this weekend, at Sex 2.0 2010.

I was lucky enough to go last year in Washington, DC (thanks to a little help from a friend who hired me to edit her novel). This year, I’m going thanks to Fascinations, who is also a Gold Sponsor of the event.

Like last year, I’m speaking, but less last minute. I’m doing a workshop on The Intersections of Sexuality and Disability Saturday morning at 10am. The rest of the weekend, I’ll be attending sessions, speaking with people I’ve missed, connecting with new friends and contacts, and more.

In case you’d like to know about my class – here is the description:
This is part class, part support group, part community organizing that is geared towards people who identify as those with disabilities or as dis/abled , and their partners (dis/ability is self defined and can include cognitive, mental, and physical ability levels). This talk is very discussion based, and will cover topics such as coming out to your partner(s), how to discuss ability levels with friends, partners, family, etc, new things to try regarding sex (positions, meds, toys), correct terminology, negotiating sex play (including kink/BDSM play), and much more. Participants are encouraged to share suggestions, trade ideas, work on creating a community and more. Great for people of all ability levels (and their partners) who want to recognize themselves as sexual beings.
